Well thanks to april i was able to save 1 of my younger discus i had bought from her from bloating and stringy poo but now i have another issue....

I have a 4-5 inch orange discus who has become pale. He is no longer eating and is not showing any signs of disease. He hides in a corner and when he tries to eat he fets chased away. He wasnt always like this so i know there is something wrong with him.

Any suggestions will be very helpful!

Everyone is going to ask you water parameters tank size and how many water changes you do. What did you treat for the bloat/stringing poo ? Prazi? How long since he ate last? Any new fish added lately?

In the mean time I would raise your tank temp to 86+ and add salt at 1 tbs/ 5 gallons. If its bacterial this will atleast keep it from getting worse and should help a bit. If it does nothing chances are it some sort of parasite. If you've already treated with prazi then you might be looking at a more difficult try of parasite (if it is a parasite). You may need to treat for namnodes which i would recoomend levamisole. (Mykiss on the site carries it if you cant find it). Good luck!
